    CellLocate: Best-in-class mobile network-based location service 
    CellLocate offers a best-in-class, mobile network-based location service, with many years of service and a strong historical track record.  Having produced billions of location data packages, provided to IoT devices all over the globe for several thousand active customers, this end-to-end solution is proven, scalable, and ready to virtually eliminate any “no position scenario”.   
     
    Data delivered where you need it, to the cloud enterprise 
    CellLocate includes the capability to report back location information to the IoT device and can be used locally by the host application. For the vast portion of constrained IoT device applications, location data is most needed, not locally on device itself, but instead by a cloud service. This is the key advantage of CellLocate location data delivery to the cloud enterprise. Positioning in the cloud extends the life of energy constrained IoT applications and can be leveraged to reliably customize your enterprise solutions. This extends market reach to a broad range of end customers, in regions all over the globe.
     
    Availability assured
     CellLocate and all u‑blox services are delivered by the Thingstream IoT service delivery platform. Thingstream is a cloud-based delivery platform and administration interface for enterprise IoT services. The Thingstream platform comprises IoT connectivity, location, security, an enterprise-grade MQTT broker, visual programming, simple enterprise integration, and support.
    We stand behind our services with the highest levels of availability and delivery quality by providing full warranty, support, and premium service levels tailored to your needs. The technology building blocks are in-house where we have full ownership without the external dependencies that can be barriers to responsiveness. 
     
    Embedded in u‑blox 2G, 3G, LPWA and LTE Cat-1 modules
    CellLocate is fully integrated into u‑blox GSM/GPRS, HSPA/UMTS, and LTE cellular modules and works in parallel with normal module functionality. The technology enables stand-alone location data based on surrounding mobile network information as well as hybrid technology that works in conjunction with GNSS. Through the single AT command interface, it is possible to define all the location settings for optimized performance.
     
    Solution works independent of network operator​s 
    It is a clever strategy to take advantage of the location attributes available via mobile networks to overcome the challenges of poor or absent GNSS. At the same time, this should not create vulnerable dependencies on the network operators themselves. Cellular networks evolve continuously, with changes made by network operators during network maintenance, to add capacity and spectrum, or even evolutionary advancements to infrastructure. Despite this, CellLocate delivers best-in-class performance by leveraging location attributes belonging to both the serving cell network and the cells of other network operators, working equally well in both cases. This provides a robustness against network changes, as well as multiplicity in the number of cells observed.
